Great video Kayla as always! Wow, even in the video I could see how huge those windrows were! That's one thing I like about running a large round baler versus running a small square baler, we can still go around 5.8 to 6mph. In decent windrows, we can crank out 38 to 40 4x6 bales in an hour. A bale every 7 seconds is amazing! Was the Freon a little low in your baler tractor? For myself, being in a tractor doing anything at all, from working ground, planting, mowing, raking or baling, loading hay onto a trailer, is like an amusement park ride. It is like a vacation, not work at all. I get to "play" with life sized toys! I know what a pain It is sometimes having to deal with good sized piles of hay in a windrow on the headlands on the inside windrow. It isn't fun to have to deal with em but they're unfortunately unavoidable, especially in heavy hay like y'all had there. I liked Jason's reaction to your query when you said the piles.....what's that? "Hey, it's just hay!" I had to chuckle. Thanks again for sharing with us!!! We love ya!
Hey there! I'm in NE Missouri also and for the last 10 years I've been taking 'vacations' in June/July to head out to the family farm and run the big round baler for my Dad. It's very satisfying seeing all those big round bales sitting on a freshly baled field in the long summer sunsets, especially after a long, hot, dirty, dusty day with breakdowns thrown in. I'd love to run a 5250 and perhaps will hopefully get one someday but for now our faithful IH 1086 and 856 gets the job done every time. Wish you the best, God Bless!
